I'm aware that most PSGs have a scale length in the range 24" - 25½", and the trade-off is between better tone and sustain v. giving the high strings an easier ride.

Their full title is Fender Deluxe 112 Plus. They're solid state, with a drive channel which I have no use for. (Apparently guitarists don't have much use for it either! Smile )

Damir's probably best placed to answer - how did Mr Papic get into building steels in the first place? Did he spend time in the States (like Mitsuo Fujii)?
